1. Se, Tony. Depth and Associated Primes of Modules over a Ring.

Degree: PhD, Mathematics, 2016, University of Kansas

This thesis consists of three main topics. In the first topic, we let R be a commutative Noetherian ring, I,J ideals of R, M a finitely generated R-module and F an R-linear covariant functor. We ask whether the sets \operatorname{Ass}R F(M/In M) and the values \operatorname{depth}J F(M/In M) become independent of n for large n. In the second topic, we consider rings of the form R = k[xa,xp1yq1, …,xptyqt,yb], where k is a field and x,y are indeterminates over k. We will try to formulate simple criteria to determine whether or not R is Cohen-Macaulay. Finally, in the third topic we introduce and study basic properties of two types of modules over a commutative Noetherian ring R of positive prime characteristic. The first is the category of modules of finite F-type. They include reflexive ideals representing torsion elements in the divisor class group. The second class is what we call F-abundant modules. These include, for example, the ring R itself and the canonical module when R has positive splitting dimension. We prove many facts about these two categories and how they are related. Our methods allow us to extend previous results by Patakfalvi-Schwede, Yao and Watanabe. They also afford a deeper understanding of these objects, including complete classifications in many cases of interest, such as complete intersections and invariant subrings.

2. Narayanan, Anand Kumar. Computation of class groups and residue class rings of function fields over finite fields.

Degree: PhD, Computer Science, 2014, University of Southern California

We study the computation of the structure of two finite abelian groups associated with function fields over finite fields: the degree zero divisor class group and the multiplicative group of the finite field itself. In addition, we present a novel algorithm to factor polynomials over finite fields using Carlitz modules. ❧ Let Fq denote the finite field with q elements and let k = Fq(t) be the rational function field with constant field Fq. Let F/k be a finite geometric abelian extension where an Fq‐rational place in k denoted as ∞ splits completely. Stark units are certain functions in F whose existence is claimed in the function field analogue of the Brumer‐Stark conjecture. In the function field setting, the Brumer‐Stark conjecture and hence the existence of Stark units was proven by P. Deligne. Further, Stark units are determined by the evaluations at 0 of Artin's L‐functions associated with the complex characters of Gal(F/k). We prove that for all primes ℓ not dividing q[F : k], the structure of the ℓ‐part of the divisor class group of F is determined by Kolyvagin derivative classes that are constructed out of Euler systems associated with the Stark units. ❧ Further, given a certain ℤ[Gal(F/k)] generator of the Stark units, we describe an algorithm to compute the structure of the ℓ‐part of the divisor class group. When F/k is a narrow ray class field (or a small index subextension of a narrow ray class field), such a generator of the Stark units module can be efficiently computed. ❧ The divisor class group Cl0F of F is a finite abelian group and fits in the exact sequence ❧ 0 → RF → Cl0F → pic(OF) → 0 ❧ where RF is the regulator and pic(OF) is the ideal class group of OF. Our algorithm to compute the ℓ‐part of the divisor class group is heavily reliant on the machinery of Euler systems of Stark units and is efficient if the ℓ‐part of the ideal class group is small. Empirical and heuristic evidence point to the ideal class group being of very small order in comparison to the divisor class group. ❧ Other applications of our technique include a fast algorithm for computing the divisor class number of narrow ray class extensions. ❧ We next turn to computing primitive elements in finite fields of small characteristic. The multiplicative group of a finite field is cyclic and generators (primitive elements) are abundant. However, finding one efficiently remains an unsolved problem. We describe a deterministic algorithm for finding a generating element of the multiplicative group of the finite field Fpn with pⁿ elements where p is a prime. In time polynomial in p and n, the algorithm either outputs an element that is provably a generator or declares that it has failed in finding one. Under a heuristic assumption, the algorithm does succeed in finding a generator. The algorithm relies on a relation generation technique in a recent breakthrough by Antoine Joux's for discrete logarithm computation in small characteristic finite fields. ❧ Building upon Joux's algorithm, Barbulescu, Gaudry, Joux and Thome… Advisors/Committee Members: Huang, Ming-Deh (Committee Chair), Adleman, Leonard (Committee Member), Kamienny, Sheldon (Committee Member).

3. Lynch, Benjamin Ryan. Elasticity of Krull Domains with Infinite class="hilite">Divisor Class Group.

Degree: 2010, University of Tennessee – Knoxville

The elasticity of a Krull domain R is equivalent to the elasticity of the block monoid B(G,S), where G is the divisor class group of R and S is the set of elements of G containing a height-one prime ideal of R. Therefore the elasticity of R can by studied using the divisor class group. In this dissertation, we will study infinite divisor class groups to determine the elasticity of the associated Krull domain. The results will focus on the divisor class groups Z, Z(p infinity), Q, and general infinite groups. For the groups Z and Z(p infinity), it has been determined which distributions of the height-one prime ideals will make R a half-factorial domain (HFD). For the group Q, certain distributions of height-one prime ideals are proven to make R an HFD. Finally, the last chapter studies general infinite groups and groups involving direct sums with Z. If certain conditions are met, then the elasticity of these divisor class groups is the same as the elasticity of simpler divisor class groups.
